  • Maker Update: Haiti Projects

    When we launched Haiti Projects on The Grommet five years ago, they were already an organization we were proud to stand behind. By employing women in Haiti to make nightgowns, the mission was not only to provide them with access to income, but also education, family-planning resources, and microloans. We recently caught up with the organization and were blown away by their progress since launch.


    Haiti Projects continues to employ about 90 women, they are the second largest employer in the Fond-des-Blancs region of Haiti. This year, they provided every single employee a 3% living wage increase, and promoted five employees to supervisory positions. Over the next two years, their goal is to add an additional 100 jobs to the organization. This year, they began a beekeeping initiative which has allowed them to hire four male beekeepers and produce 50 gallons of 100% organic honey.

  • 30 ways to $%#(@$** Celebrate!

    How can we possibly give a birthday tribute befitting of our Sandrine (aka Sanda-rine, aka Sandy)?

    We should start with fireworks, a live marching band, cupcakes and a champagne toast. But no one would chip in for that.

    We ran a CAC analysis--Cost to Acquire Candles—and that was more within our budget.

    On this special day, let's remember Sandrine's impact on our daily work lives. Like her incredible laugh, ringing through the office. Her CPC is a bit high--Crack-ups per Calendar day—but that's because, let's face it—there's a lot to laugh about on our team. Especially at Natalie's expense.

    Really, though, who else is so dedicated to acronyms in daily work (outside the military, maybe) besides our Sandrine?

    She always wants to know the daily CAAL percentage—(Chocolate Available After Lunch). Bring in some chocolate-covered almonds and make her birthday afternoon. (No Hersheys though. Her dad makes French chocolate. So have some standards.)

    Btw, if it seems like this post is long, we apologize. We were told to stay within a strict time limit for reading it. In Sandrine form, though, time restrictions mean nothing to us today. Gongs and time limits, be damned!

    Sandrine, the place you most excel is LTV. And that one just means the usual—Lifetime Value. Yours is off the charts. May you get back just half of the smiles, smarts and joy you bring to those around you.

    Happiest of Birthdays from all your fans at the office.
